Description: In 1968, we were just a local BBQ joint in Gainesville, Florida. Today, we're still a local BBQ joint. We just happen to be in a few more locations. But we still do things the same way Floyd "Sonny" Tillman and his wife, Lucille, did back then. We still slow-smoke over oak for up to 12 hours at a time. We still serve generous portions. And we still believe people should be able to go out to eat and feel right at home.

Thursday is all you can eat ribs and they were good. We were able to make it through seconds after salads and the two sides. They were busy so order your next plate early before you are done with the first or it will take awhile.

We had great service, very good food, reasonable prices, and senior specials.
Right next door to the Microtel.

Stopped to eat lunch and usually Sonnys has great food and service but this Sonny's was poorly managed, dirty, and had poor food. Very disappointed. Frozen ham on the Salad Bar, when I asked if they could change it out for fresher ham that wasn't frozen they said no. Serve had to delay the chicken entree from coming out because it wasn't up to temperature. The table was dirty and seats were filthy. I had to send a plate and fork back because there was still food on them from being washed. I would not recommend this Sonny's to anyone until quality control is better.

I grew up in Florida and Sonny's BBQ was a regular staple in Homestead for us. That was over 20 years ago. So when I saw a Sonny's near the city my mother and I would be visiting my grandfather's grave, I said that we would DEFINITELY be stopping there! I had the beef brisket and my mother had shredded chicken, each with a salad bar. Everything was delicious! I remember the portions being bigger, but maybe that was because I was a kid then... either way, it was good!
